activated charcoal tooth whitening hoax

Hello folks!

It has recently come to my attention about these so called 'activated charcoal' tooth whitening products.

Here is the official position of the American Dental Association (click this link)

There is no evidence that shows dental products with charcoal are safe or effective for your teeth, according to the September 2017 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association.

Also, using materials that are too abrasive on your teeth can actually make them look more yellow. Enamel is what you’re looking to whiten, but if you’re using a scrub that is too rough, you can actually wear it away.

Buyers beware. While there are no unproven harmful effects, there are no SCIENTIFICALLY proven effects as of yet either.

Ever heard of snake oil? This is simply a case of exceedingly good social media marketing.

At P799, it is more expensive than whitening toothpastes.

Activated Charcoal is a good antidote for any kind of poisoning. You might save somebody's life, or yours. Claims for its use as tooth whitening agent on the other hand seems sketchy, for now.
